    Team is stuffed for this round, 219k in bank where do i go?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 11:19 am

      you can move on rcd to newcombe, then use that money to upgrade someone like jordon. I’d get rid of heeney (on his bye as well) to a premo fwd. I’d hold idun cause hes playing this week.

      • harv

        June 15, 2021 at 3:13 pm

        i can go rcd,heeny,h.jones,jordon > newcombe, langford,haynes,hunter

        Or should i prioritise a premo mid

        • Aby Benny

          June 15, 2021 at 5:43 pm

          sounds good, but just be careful Haynes could drop a 50 this week. Everyone else is good. Can you afford houston instead of haynes? another option is going houston instead of hunter/langford and putting money on top of one of the other players.

  2. Captain_Pine_Apple_Crush

    June 14, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    I’d probably be hopping on Newcombe in a least one of your trades. Probably for RCD or even Jordon, lets you upgrade some guys in your back or forward line

    Hi guys – Is there any extra trades or still just the 3 for round 14?

    • BJ

      June 14, 2021 at 7:03 pm

      4 for Round 14 then back to 2 per week after that.

      • Fishxma

        June 14, 2021 at 8:01 pm

        Where and when did that info come out?

    Isaac heeney hold or sell?

    • BJ

      June 14, 2021 at 7:05 pm

      I’m selling. Can’t see many reasons to hold him unless you have really bad problems elsewhere.

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 11:21 am

      sell on his bye as well

  5. BJ

    June 14, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    1860. Dropped scores from Bianco (33), Heeney (40) and Jones (46).

    Lowest score kept was 64 from Baby John Burgess.

    19 on field next week before trades and $156k in the bank so thinking possibly Jones and Burgess down for cash and then Harmes and Heeney up to 2 forward premiums with a bit of DPP which would get me 21 on field.

    Don’t have Hall so he should be one but no idea who to grab with the other … possibly Langford??? (Have Kelly/Hunter/Hind/Phillips/DeGoey already with Phillips to go after R14).

  6. Bill

    June 14, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Melbourne still can’t be trusted. They’re too used to losing.

    Kelly, Zorko, Hind, Hunter, Phillips, Poulter (cahill, treacy)
    1791 last week
    Any ideas guys, going whitfield instead of hall last week looks like it wasnt the best choice but oh well. Probably gonna be tryna get rid of byrnes, Jordon this week but unsure what to do with them and what the other two trades should be

    • Cody O'Brien

      June 14, 2021 at 8:07 pm

      thinking something like
      Leaves me with 3 rooks on field, flynn, armatey and poulter

      • Aby Benny

        June 15, 2021 at 5:45 pm

        Nice trades. Not sure if rosas will keep his spot keep an eye out for debutants as well. Yeah macrae must have.

  8. Jeff

    June 14, 2021 at 7:46 pm

    DEF: Laird, hall, short, whit, ridley, highmore (Burgers, bianco)
    MID: Macrae, merrett, TT, Mitchell, crouch, smith, JJ, newcombe (Laz, O conner)
    RUCK: ROB, gawn (Meek)
    FWD: Kelly, Martin, phillips, fyfe, heeney, poulter (Scott, macrae)
    UTIL: Brock
    Thinking of holding Fyfe for this week, wanting to trade out heeney and potentially JJ then a downgrade

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:46 pm

      you can move on JJ and heeney. depending on how many playesr you have this week you could even go JJ to someone like edwards and upgrade heeney.

  9. Luke

    June 14, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    Best 3 mids to chase points from?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:45 pm

      Macrae, parish, miller

  10. Nathan Grant

    R: Gawn, Flynn ( Reeves)
    F: Hall, Kelly, Danger, Darcy, Heeney, Robertson ( F.Macrae, T. Wilson)

    Thoughts on trading Heeney, Jordon, Harmes & F.Macrae for Titch, Boak, Rosas & Amartey. Leaves 3k in bank and fields 19. 20 if Reeves play

  11. Josh

    June 14, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    is Kosi –> Haynes a good option to get Bianco off my field? Or do I wait another week or two to see if Haynes continues to score well?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:46 pm

      yeah i’d wait a week on haynes. It was just one 30 from bianco, and was against hardest team to score against.

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:47 pm

      damn thats a lot of bank.

      • Aby Benny

        June 15, 2021 at 5:48 pm

        you could get rid of RCD, and rowe i guess. Both have byes.

  13. Fishxma

    June 14, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Hi guys – Best combo?

    Parish and Ladhams or
    Lyons and Langford

    • Burnt

      June 15, 2021 at 7:30 am

      Will Ladhmas play once Lycett comes back?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:48 pm

      Second, not sure about ladhams onces lycett comes back.

      Don’t play during the byes

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:49 pm

      you could move on byrnes or jones, upgrade them maybe?

  15. Bill

    June 14, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Okay to get rid of Byrnes as well as Jordon if it allows me to get Taranto?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:49 pm


  16. Tom

    June 15, 2021 at 1:25 am

    What’s a bigger priority atm? moving rookies off my field (Byrnes, Poulter, D.Rob, Weightman) or getting rid of Heeney?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 11:21 am

      these rookies youve listed are good ones for now. I’d get rid of heeney first. Hes on his bye as well

  17. Brian Smith

    June 15, 2021 at 2:40 pm

    I can do one small upgrade and one large. So for the large do I go Koschitzke to Hunter or Green to Parish? Both have an increase of about 60 points. Kozzie has to go, but with Whit / Davis / Greene back, Green needs to go as well I feel.

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:51 pm

      yeah tom green hasnt done many great things this year. Darcy parish is a gun as well. Kozzie will keep his spot and stay around the same price. I’d go green to a premo mid or parish in this case.

  18. The Kid

    June 15, 2021 at 3:03 pm

    Any suggestions/comments on my trades this week:

    Heeney —> Langford

    Koschitzkev —> Madden (should get a game with Lester out)

    RCD —> Newcombe

    I am not sure to what to do with my last trade, but thinking to trade out Tom Green who has a BE of 90. I also have Byrnes and Poulter who have byes this week, but thinking of holding.

    I was thinking to upgrade to parish as that will ensure I have 18 on field this week. Any suggestions?

    • Aby Benny

      June 15, 2021 at 5:52 pm

      rcd should be first to go out of him byrnes and poulter. Green’s playing this week so maybe keep him, but depends on if you have 18 or more than that. I’d move him on if you can. Newcombe a must have. Yeah good idea to get rid of heeney, also doing that.

  19. Adam

    June 15, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    Hay lads thoughts on who’s more likely to hold there spot Foley (WC) or Walker (Freo) need to take a risk with a cheap def if there is no new rooks named cheers
